How do I open a link from Private Browsing in a regular window?

Posted

when following a link from regular browsing, I can choose in the context menu "open in a new tab", "open in a new window", "open in a new private window". But during Private Browsing, I only have "open in a new tab" (which is of course private also) and "open in a new private window". Occasionally I would like to open a link in a regular browsing window. So ideally the context menu from a private browsing session would have the option "open in a regular window". What is the most elegant way to achieve this? Do I really have to "copy link location", open a new window (or change to a regular one and open a new tab) and paste the URL into the address bar? I can't believe there is no easier way. Thanks!

I don't think there is such a action like that. You have to copy the url and paste to the regular browser to open it.
